Hillbilly physics

Dedoimedo also writes awesome fantasy, sci-fi and horror books. Why don't you take a look? Enjoy!

This section deals with popular phenomena in the world of physics, everyday things that make this world tick so mysteriously. I will try to write in a down-to-earth style, avoiding complicated and boring formulae.

Dedoimedo Hillbilly physics will teach you about common, everyday things that everyone takes for granted, like terrible mistakes in sci-fi movies, zombie survival tricks, fart levitation, all kinds of deep space mysteries, thixotrophy, dreams, telepathy, super heroes, speed of light, time travel, and more. There will be also a lot of cool physical experiments, including video demos on Youtube and whatnot. Together, we shall unravel the secrets of the Universe. Maybe, maybe not. Forget the fancy equations. Just enjoy!
